Daily News and Links for 9/12/14.

I'm filling in for Marima today- Don't get too upset! Here's my amateur version of daily links!

ESPN's Mike Reiss asks if the Patriots should shadow the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson with Darrelle Revis.

Who do the guys at ESPN have winning on Sunday?

Reiss chats with fans about what went wrong against the Dolphins and what the team can do moving forward.

ESPN's Lee Schechter says that Rob Gronkowski wants to throw down some more touchdown spikes.

Linebacker Jamie Collins was added to the injury report (limited with a thigh injury), but was the only change.

Vince Wilfork is expecting the Vikings to run more inside zones- the playset that the Dolphins' Knowshon Moreno had a field day running.

Reiss tracked penalties in the first game. Their three roughing the passer calls is just one shy of their entire 2012 season.

On a similar note, Reiss talks about how the refs were calling more roughing the passer calls on Thursday night.

WEEI's Trags notes Bill Belichick compares Patterson to explosive returnman Jacoby Jones.

Darrelle Revis is a fan of Patterson's.

Patterson misconstrues Belichick's comments about filling other positions in the 2013 draft as Belichick saying that the Patriots didn't want Patterson.

Boston Herald's Adam Kurkjian summarizes Belichick's thoughts on the roughing the passer calls.

The Herald's Karen Guregian notes that Revis is ignoring the detractors from Week 1.

The Herald's Jeff Howe's Patriots Notebook and the imminent return of Chris Jones to the defensive line.

Boston Herald's Chris Mason points out that Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph will be a "colossal target" for the defense to cover.'s Erik Frenz poses the question: If the Patriots couldn't stop Knowshon Moreno, how will they go about slowing down Adrian Peterson?

Frenz notes that quarterback Matt Cassel credits his success to sitting behind Tom Brady.

Providence Journal's Mark Daniels says rookie Zach Moore is excited to go back to Minnesota, where he attended college.

MassLive's Jen McCaffrey notes that the defense wasn't supposed to be the concern this season.
